These are a few of my favourite things (food talk)

Nikki Starr from the Flylady family is thinking of doing a food show on BlogTalkRadio. Ooooo, I love food talk! And I love food...here's a rundown, in no particular order:
  • chocolate (Ritter Sport with Marcipan or Chocolate Mousse) I'm not a 'high percentage' chocolate snob - I'd rather have a huge, cheap Easter egg that you can break into hundreds of pieces and nibble all day long...
  • cherry-filled chocolates
  • salt n' vinegar crisps
  • fresh raspberries (especially with a light sprinkling of sugar and some single cream poured over)
  • maki sushi
  • a runny boiled egg with buttered, toast soldiers
  • foie gras or warm, fried lobe of foie gras
  • champagne - any time of the day ;)
  • gin & tonic
  • crisp white wine in a bedazzlingly clean glass on a stiff white tablecloth
  • a good bloody steak with béarnaise sauce
  • chips/fries with mayonnaise or Scottish 'chippy' sauce
  • huge platter of fresh veggies with Goma dressing for dipping
  • Ben & Jerry's Phishfood icecream
  • bacon (it makes anything taste good)
  • maraschino cherries
  • prawns/gambas
  • lemon meringue pie
  • a Danish meatball sandwich (with roasted onions, red cabbage, pickled cucumber and remoulade) from Benny's Pølsevogn (Benny's Hotdog Stand)
Looking over the list, quite a few of these items will be appearing on our table this weekend...who'd have thunk?! Bon appétit and bon weekend! :)

One of our family holiday traditions is that we make our own chocolate covered cherries :) Maybe I'll make that my holiday post this week so you can see the recipe! LOL
